The British High Commission in Dhaka manages a Bilateral Programme Budget (BPB) on behalf of the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The programme aims to fund small, targeted projects which support the FCO’s priorities:

  • strengthening a rules-based international system which supports UK values;
  • safeguarding security by countering terrorism and weapons proliferation, and working to reduce conflict;
  • building prosperity, opening markets, ensuring access to resources and promoting sustainable global growth;
  • supporting modern and efficient consular services.

2014/15 Programme:

We are pleased to announce the 2014/15 call for bids.

All proposed project activities must qualify as Official Development Assistance (ODA) and must be completed by 15 March 2015. Projects will need to demonstrate clear measureable outcomes, and should contribute to bringing about change at a policy level in order to maximise the impact that our small amount of funding can deliver. Co-funded projects are particularly welcomed. Proposals should be strategically aligned with at least one of the following categories:

  • Strengthened democracy with effective, accountable, and responsive governance and an empowered civil society;
  • Support for rule of law;
  • Protection and promotion of human rights, particularly minority and gender rights;
  • Promoting international labour and safety standards in the ready-made garment sectors;
  • An improved investment climate and growth-led climate resilient economic development;
  • Climate Change: support to secure international agreements on climate change, or to increase Bangladesh’s resilience and capacity to respond to and recover from natural disasters

Deadline for submission of project bids

The deadline for submission of project bids is 26 May 2014. Please note that only projects submitted on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s project bidding form will be considered for review. All projects are assessed by the Programme Board at the British High Commission, Dhaka, subject to the availability of funds.
